Zell am Ziller is a sprawling working town in the valley with slopes on two nearby mountains. It is linked to Gerlos and Königsleiten to form the Zillertal Arena, an intermediate area with good, wide motorway skiing. The town is a bus ride from the gondola into the ski area and après-ski centres around a few bars near the base of the gondola. The village itself is picturesque with a cobbled square surrounded by cafés and boutique shopping.
